Drostdy Hotel

The majestic facade of the Drostdy Hotel in Graaff-Reinet speaks for itself. It was built in 1806 and designed by famous French architect Louis Thibault as a “Drostdy” or magistrate’s court. Initially restored to its former splendour in 1977, it has recently undergone a multi-million rand refurbishment, making it a thoroughly 21st-century hotel.

Accommodation is provided in 48 beautifully styled rooms in clusters of historic outbuildings. The rooms in Stretch’s Court are housed in old slave cottages on either side of a 19th Century cobbled road, with Victorian street lamps and flanked by pastel coloured doorways. The other accommodation areas, Ferreira precinct and Kromm’s Court, also have their own pool areas and particular style. All rooms are air-conditioned, with underfloor heating in the en-suite bathrooms. Luxury touches include complimentary Nespresso style pod coffee, herbal teas and biscuits in room, 24-hour room service, fully stocked personal mini bar in all rooms, bathrobes and slippers and luxury bathroom amenities. There is complimentary WiFi throughout the hotel.

Other facilities at the hotel include a superb in-house restaurant, De Cambdeboo, which specializes in Karoo cuisine. There is a bar, a gym, an Africology spa, an art gallery, a wine shop and a wine cellar. There is also a classic cigar lounge where you can escape into the Old Karoo with some carefully-curated local literature and a cognac.
